Earlier this year I was invited to the magnificent Orchardleigh House in Somerset to capture Tom and Tanya’s wedding adventure. I had done photography in Orchardleigh before, the difference this time was that the weather had decided not to play ball and so it was a very British wedding weather-wise indeed – cold, breezy and raining the whole day. The beautiful grounds of Orchardleigh estate therefore were left unexplored that day by wedding guests and the newlyweds. However the good thing was in the fact that inside of Orchardleigh House is perhaps even more splendid then the outside, so despite the weather it was still a wonderful day for Tom and Tanya.
Orchardleigh House is also a very challenging venue to photograph, even in a good weather. That, coupled with a very overcast and dark day made it to be one of the most challenging wedding assignments I can remember doing for a long time. Good thing I love challenges! :) I managed to get a lot of great story-telling shots from the day in my usual style, using fast lenses and only available light for most of the day. Here are some of the photos from Tom and Tanya’s wedding story.
